Then up to the stunning Victoria Falls, Hawanghe, back to Beite Bridge and back into South Africa where we visit the line into Sabie, and its stud of GF Garrets. We then take the steep and winding line to Graskop behind a 19D. then to the border with Swaziland at Barberton, behind double headed 19Ds.
